Apostle Suleman to appear before DSS with About 30 Lawyers

Apostle Sulemam

Apostle Johnson Suleman, the General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide has been invited by the department of state Services to appear at its National Headquarters in Abuja.

 The interrogation is expected to hold on Monday by 10 am; in view of the fact that he allegedly said Christians should defend themselves against attacks by Fulani herdsmen.
 It was revealed that "Suleman will be appearing before the DSS with about 30 lawyers because we believe that his persecution has become politicized."
When contacted, Apostle Suleman's Communications Adviser, Mr. Phrank Shaibu, confirmed the invitation saying he would appear before the DSS on Monday."
He said "Yes, I can confirm to you that he was officially invited and as a law-abiding citizen, he will honour the DSS invitation on Monday. The invitation though ludicrous and an afterthought, is a welcome development."
 Reacting to this, former Prelate of the Methodist Church of Nigeria, His Eminence Sunday la Makinde, said that Nigeria should not be turned to a police state.
Sunday Makinde said "He should be law-abiding, let him go and face the DSS. Let us see if they will detain him and will detain so many religious leaders in Abuja.
"Nigeria is greater than any religion and Nigeria is greater than anybody. The DSS should watch it. If they like, let me be the next victim. What is annoying them i that Suleman converted from Islam to Christianity.

"Self defence is permissible; they slapped our first cheek. They slapped the second cheek and we have no other cheek to turn for them. We may therefore resort to self defence because this thing is becoming intolerable."
